Stephen Bywater saved Derby in the battle of the bottom two at Pride Park as he pulled off a late double save to deny Sammy Lee´s Bolton three priceless Barclays Premier League points in a 1-1 draw.

Bywater parried Christian Wilhelmsson´s drive before recovering to tip Nicolas Anelka´s follow-up against the underside of the crossbar with just 11 minutes remaining.

The Rams had taken a 19th-minute lead through Kenny Miller´s low drive before Anelka equalised in the 32nd minute with a shot from the edge of the box which took a wicked deflection off Claude Davies.
